I agree strongly with the central thesis of this post and the suggestions are both helpful and practical.  The following excerpt resonated especially strongly with me: 

"Being taken seriously is key to many EA objectives, such as growing the movement, getting mainstream researchers to care about the EA risks of their work, and having policymakers give weight to EA considerations."

Indeed, EA doesn't need to become less weird in order to further its objectives, but it should be possible to develop more layperson-friendly framings to that end.
